Celtic twice had to come from behind to earn a share of the spoils as Hibs threatened to inflict the first SPL defeat of the season on Martin O'Neill's men.
Hibs got off to a great start with giant Celtic defender Bobo Balde putting through his own net after just eight minutes.
Celtic drew themselves level on 34 minutes with Henri Camara firing home from eight yards after being fed by Juninho although the Brazilian appeared to be flagged offside before he crossed the ball.
Parity was short-lived as Hibs restored their lead almost immediately with David Murphy bursting through the Celtic defence and coolly beating David Marshall.
Celtic replied and equalised for the second time right on the stroke of half time with John Hartson getting on the end of Juninho's pass before slotting the ball past Simon Brown.
Celtic threw everything into attack in the second half to try and find a winner with Stilian Petrov, Chris Sutton and Stanislav Varga all going close for the visitors.
Rangers eased the pressure on Alex McLeish with a narrow 1-0 win over Inverness Caledonian Thistle at Ibrox.
Dado Prso grabbed the winner for the hosts after 17 minutes with a close-range header for his third goal for the club.
Jean-Alain Boumsong headed against the crossbar once in each half as Rangers tried to add to their lead.
Inverness refused to be overawed by their opponents with Maurice Ross heading against the underside of his own crossbar, while Richie Hart wasted a great chance one-on-one with Stefan Klos.
The visitors were reduced to ten men in the dying moments when Grant Munro was sent off for a second bookable offence.
The win lifts Rangers into third spot five points behind Old Firm rivals Celtic.
Dunfermline recorded their first win of the season with a 1-0 victory over Hearts at East End Park.
Barry Nicholson notched the all-important winning goal on 65 minutes with a brilliant 30-yard lob over Craig Gordon.
Gordon had kept Hearts in the game before that by saving Gary Dempsey's penalty on 46 minutes as Dunfermline dominated throughout.
The victory lifts Dunfermline off the bottom of the table and up to ninth.
